Could you please give a little more information on the Schooner Milan? I'd like to know a general area that it is located.

I have seen a similar looking schooner that is sitting in 162 feet of water SW of Kingston near an old missle firing range. Any additional information would be appreciated.

In deep water off the southern shore of Lake Ontario near Point Breeze, Oak Orchard, New York.

I have been reading about the Schooner Milan that sank in October 1849. A news item dated 5-30-68, reported that my Great Grandfather, Thomas Dolan, Captain of the Schooner Milan, was crushed to death the previous day by falling stone being unloaded at the foot of Seventeenth street, north River. Would this schooner have been a successor to the first.
